I think most brides have had a least one breakdown.  I know for me, I totally freaked out when we were cleaning and decorating for the reception.  My mom had asked that i windex all of the windows in her house (that is where the wedding was.)  As i was cleaning my 28 yes 28th window, she asked me to come out side to look at the paper lanterns she had bought.  I said I was busy cleaning all of the windows and I have seen paper lanters before, she kept telling me to come out to look at hers though, and then I just started to cry hysterically. No one including my self could understand what was going on, i will just chalk it up to everyone wanting me in one place and the same time.  I really think it is normal to be stressed and nervous, and for me that just means tears!

Yep. As it has gotten closer it has gotten worse. I punched a wall, which is a little out of character for me. LOL. I feel totally nuts and like I’ve lost some of myself during the planning.  Crying for no reasons. Picking fights about stuff that I would normally never care about. Yes. It’s happened here. However, I’m now 12 days away and I feel like I’m getting back to normal.

Haha your post made me laugh.  I think I’ve been crying/having “crisises” more often.

Fiance had a huge bridezilla (groomzilla??) moment when my friend made her wedding out of country a week after our wedding, that I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man in.  I feel like we get a extended Honeymoon, so what is the big deal!?

I’m trying to do alot of stuff myself to AVOID bridezilla moments (you know, things not done to my expectations), but, perhaps it will increase them as we get closer to the wedding…

Am laughing, because I certainly have! When looking for venues, FH and I drove an hour or so to what looked promising, and I had a total meltdown when he didn’t like the place. I was so frustrated so quickly! Was stomping around cursing and muttering about how I was doing all this work to find a place and he got to come along and just say it wasn’t right… What was really infuriating at the time but so funny now is that FH took it in stride, was actually smiling/laughing a bit. Made me stop and laugh too. So far haven’t directed it at anyone but him (poor thing), trying to keep my sense of humor. The other side is I don’t think I’ve cried this much either – it’s quite the rollercoaster.

Nope.  Not enough time to have any!  Our wedding took all of 5 minutes to plan.  Darling Husband said “Every time we try to plan this, you get pregnant.  So let’s just go out and do this now!!” on a Wednesday morning.  He phoned a JoP and we ran out to get our license.  We called our immediate families, told them that we were getting married at 4 pm and told them where to meet us.  When the kids came home from school, we got them dressed and headed out to meet our JoP.  

For as little as we planned that day, I had a wedding night/honeymoon baby!  Haha!  Good thing we didn’t start planning for a future wedding because I probably still would be waiting to get married!

Yes! I finally had one in front of my Maid/Matron of Honor who came to visit over the holiday. I sent out a carefully thought out email in July, just after my Save-The-Date Cards were received by guests. I am renting out a vacation property where 50% of our guests will be housed. So our wedding will be a weekend event.

On the email, I listed the event dates, schedule (i.e., arrival and departure times), nearest airports and proximity to the property, the city’s website so guests can look up nearby activities and businesses, what to pack, temperature during the season, sunrise and sunset times, etc. I also instructed the recipients to save the email and refer back to it as they plan their travel.

Last week, I heard my Maid/Matron of Honor on the phone with one of my guests who will be staying at the property and I heard her giving thewrong travel advice like picking up the guest from the airport on the day of the wedding, which I nixed immediately. As it, turns out, that guest got her vacation approved to begin on the date of my wedding. She is flying from FL to CA so obviously everyone will be too busy to pick her up….ugh!!! When that issue was finally hashed out, my Maid/Matron of Honor decides to volunteer to pick up another guest from the airport around the same time the wedding rehearsal starts…WTF?! In addition, she was also fielding questions that were already answered on the email.

I took time to write that email, but apparently no one reads nowadays. I am short of printing the email and mailing it to people. Maybe they’ll read it then?? As for my Maid/Matron of Honor, I told her she can do whatever she wants. She’ll need to finalize her plans by January and let me know. That way, if I need someone else to be my Maid/Matron of Honor because she is so busy volunteering to pick up people from the airport, I can. UGH!!! I was so mad!!!

Mini-ones, for sure! My sister didn’t order her bridesmaid dress and never bothered to tell me until 11 weeks before the wedding. The store wouldn’t request the dresses for the other girls w/o her order. I was pretty pissed when I had to pay for it myself and pay rush fees for the other girls’ dresses. Then, the same store told me the dresses would be in in early November and they just got in last week. I didn’t get mad until they repeatedly ignored my (and my bridesmaids) calls – then I was  steamed.

Hmm… Oh! I had one the other day because Mr. C told me it was ok that we didn’t invite his uncle and his grandma (who is crrraaaaazy!) threw this huge, dramatic hissy fit and refused to come to the wedding. I was having a bad day anyway and had been asking him for months if he thought it was ok that he wasn’t invited and if she would freak out. I was so irritated I had to just walk outside in the snow for a minute. Sounds unreasonable, but I have zero tolerance for people like his grandma, and she had upset Mr. C’s mom, who I adore, because he was a dumbass lol

Im not nervous about marriage, I have really serious and big worries but it is all about our moving on in our lives, careers and so on.  I know what I want and Im focused on it. And Im 200% sure about my choice, my future husband, so wedding is just a ceremony, and I dont think too much about it. I still dont have dress and not so happy abt choosing it, I just want beautiful destination place, and have fun there with good photographer, and maybe nice honey moon traveling after it. We need to build a lot in our new life but I like having purpose in life, it gives me sense.

I had one about a week ago, but I feel it was justified–the jewelry store where we ordered FH’s ring somehow lost contact with the girl who had placed the order, so we waited almost two months for it to come in. Once it was in, we were informed that it was the wrong size. I’m glad it fit him anyway or I would have flipped shit, especially since were were down to a week out at that point and there was no way it could have been resized or reordered in time. Whew!
